The walk from Pemberton to Northcliffe is well known for pleasant walking through the karri forest. If you’re looking to complete another section of the Bibbulmun Track, then this one at 57km in total, is achievable over the four days comfortably. We have decided to walk it in reverse (Northcliffe to Pemberton), just for something a little different and we’ve included in our ‘Happy Camper’ series, as it’s generally a lovely time of year to camp out.

‘Happy Camping’, doesn’t mean carrying a full backpack with your gear while out walking the track, nor does it mean you will be sleeping in one of the track shelters. We transport you to the track each day from our base camp, you only require a day pack while walking, then we pick you up after the day’s walking and take you back Base Camp once again.

Our base camp for this tour is surrounded by acres of beautiful Karri & Redgum forest, adjoining surrounding state national forest. The Campground has hot showers & flushing toilets and we will be set up with all the necessary comforts you would expect from an Adventurous Women Tour. Please read about our "Happy Camper" Series, so you know what is provided for you and what you can expect.

Itinerary

Day 1: Northcliffe to Lane Poole Road (11.2k)

Today we leave Perth at 8.00am making our way to Northcliffe, with a break for lunch prior to beginning our walk for the day. This section of the Bibbulmun Track is a great warm up, as it’s relatively easy walking (and a good stretch for the body after being in the bus for a few hours). On finishing for the day, we’ll head off to our Base Camp for the next three nights and settle in.

Meals: Lunch / Dinner

Day 2: Lane Poole Road to Moons Crossing (13k)

This morning, after breakfast we hit the track again for a beautiful walk, stopping at the Schafer Campsite for morning tea and spending some time here to reflect on the tranquil surrounds and beauty of the area. There’s also a waterhole here for those who would like to get a little more adventurous and take the opportunity to have a dip. Today’s walk should finish up just after lunch, so we then venture into the quaint little town of Northcliffe where we visit Understory, a nationally unique art in nature experience, that’s a little out of the ordinary! It’s back to Base Camp afterwards for another night of great food & great conversation.

Meals: Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

Day 3: Moons Crossing to Gloucester Road (20.5k)

Another fabulous day on the track, with a few ups and downs along the way, to get the heart rate up. For a good part of the day we follow the path of the Warren River, while enjoying the shade of the mighty Karri Trees and onto Gloucester Road, which is our end point for today. Then it’s back to Base Camp to enjoy nature & relax for the evening.

Meals: Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

Day 4: Gloucester Road to Trailhead, Pemberton (12k)

After breakfast this morning, we pack up camp before heading off on our last 12 k’s of this lovely section the Bibbulmun Track. Today’s walk will consist of a few more ups and downs, through stunning Karri Forest. Some of you may choose to take the diversion to check out ‘The Cascades’ en-route (our guide will discuss this option). We also pass the Gloucester Tree today and those who wish to brave the climb, are welcome to do so, before heading onto the trail head in Pemberton. We will enjoy lunch in Pemberton, prior to boarding the bus for the trip home.

No Princess Policy

Princess crossed out This tour by it's very nature is not designed for the 5 Star Traveller. It is for the girl who has an 'adventurous spirit' and is looking for a unique and rewarding experience (Once in a Lifetime)! You should be able to adopt a "Go With The Flow" attitude, after-all we are in a foreign country and things don't always go to plan...this will help you chill out and therefore get the best out of your holiday. You will also need to be mobile without assistance - some of the sights require you to be on your feet, navigating steps and uneven surfaces at times. We also have a couple of walks as part of this tour - these walks can be achieved by anyone with a general level of fitness, but again mobility is the key, as with all of our tours.

I enjoyed all parts of the Cape to Cape. The accomodation was basic but a lot better than camping out. The combination of Sue Hile & Emily & Simon was special. Thanks for the amazing walk.

Having now completed the Cape to Cape journey, a long-time dream of mine, gave me such appreciation for our beautiful landscape, rugged coastline and magnificent oceans that demand our respect. Being given the means and support to do this, at times, challenging walk by Adventurous Women to fulfill this rewarding experience makes me feel so privileged. Sharing the week with such a lovely like-minded group of women up for the challenge was uplifting as we endeavoured, no matter our age, to complete this renowned track.
